The Appledore Maritime Heritage Trust is the custodian of the Ex-RNLI Jane Hannah MacDonald III lifeboat which is registered with National Historic Ships and the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships.

Despite all her scars and life of service, she remains as an intact hull with distinct end boxes. Considerable repair is needed: the internal structural and deck levels require reconstruction in addition to all metal work, ropes and sail rigging. A restoration project is planned for her.
